One more for sand :) I had a smooth gravel for a long time with my Clowns, then I redid their tank, and changed to a "silver sand" that I can get at the landscape supply store (about $20 for 100 lbs). I could not believe the difference in the Clowns antics. You could almost see them smiling as they ...

I snagged 6 Kubotai from Lotsoffish on Aquabid and are they ADORABLE....but TINY. They have been in QT and are fiesty, eating like the pigs they are, and fattening up ni...

I'm a Clown owner again :):)

Yep, I'm back :D After Albert and the gang passed, I actually turned the 125g into a Tropheus tank. I have a beautiful group of Duboisi that breed just enough to keep me in little spotty babies :D However, fate took a twist and the tank sprung a tiny leak. The front right seal apparently pulled away...

Hey Martin.....

Not to be nosey or anything, but when I see your name on a Photo, it makes me a bit nervous ;) So....I know this isn't you, and I thought you might want to know if your pics are being used. Please forgive me if they have permission :oops: http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/auction.cgi?fwcatfishl...

Too Cool :):)

Since I didn't pre-order, where can I get the new book? I really would rather give my business to a local store, but if Amazon is my only choice....

OH, and what is the title so I can find it :roll:

OMG, this is so amazing :D:D:D:D:D

I too like the Killi pic....actually, I like the Albino BN pic as well ;)
